Originally an adaptation poem based on “The Big Bad Wolf”, I’ve used this metaphor to discuss and explore rape culture by examining the female body through the lens of a “house”. Meant to discuss the tragedies revolving intergenerational rape culture, this poem contains what could trigger memories of sexual assault in some readers. Please be advised.
